The common theme that crops up again and again is often portrayed as the secret to living a healthy life is how the person thinks. I cannot emphasise enough that it doesn’t honestly matter what you DO if what you THINK is truly what is standing in your way.
I was listening to an audio by one of my favourite authors and teachers Wayne Dyer, this morning. What he said is honestly what every good teacher will tell you if you will listen and that is ” Your thoughts form your reality”. And so it follows that you think healthy thoughts and you will have a healthier life.
Sounds simple doesn’t it? And it is, BUT, and this is a huge BUT! This cannot be achieved without knowing the one big secret that will sabotage you every time! I hope that I am being emphatic here because this is what makes the difference. And that secret is BELIEF .
If you do not believe what you are thinking then it won’t make any difference to the general health of your life and your lifestyle. I have seen so many times people doing affirmations, trying so hard to change their life, incorporating every diet, philosophy, and new concept trend or idea in order to make their life better and they don’t make any difference to their external life. And that is truly because they don’t necessarily believe in what they are doing.
Action is important for sure and if we don’t take action steps to better our health then we will not end up with the healthy balanced body we desire but what is going on underneath is so much more important. I have seen this in people with cancer and terminal diseases. They start on a program or diet to turn their life around and get back on the track to complete health. And for some people it works, they 康寶萊苦主 get better, they survive traumatic treatments and surgeries and mange to regain their health. The key though is that it is not just about what they DO and quite frankly if it was about that then anyone with an illness could just do the same and everyone would get the same result. But they don’t and the difference is not really in the action but in the belief behind the action.
Think of it this way – when a cell is dividing in the womb and forming a foetus does it question its own actions? does it think ” I am just not sure how to do this thing called developing?” No – there is simply a belief system underlying that KNOWS it will develop as it should. Or perhaps the apple tree growing from an apple seed. Does the apple seed worry that if it does the wrong thing it won’t eventually turn into apple tree – not at all! It simply creates based on the belief that an apple seed does ultimately turn into an apple tree.
So to use this analogy to help us in the idea of creating a healthier life, the best way to think of it is this – we can stand in our own way by worrying that we don’t know what to do, how to be healthy, what to eat, what to avoid etc Or we can simply change our perspective by changing the thoughts and things we focus on so that we can tap into our innate BELIEF that we are healthy! It is our natural state of being,but it cannot happen unless we first believe that is the case. Work on what you believe about yourself and your life and you will find amazing things happen. The right resources will simply be there to assist you on your path to a healthy life and you won’t even necessarily know how they got in front of you. It is all about trust – trusting yourself and the universe we live in and knowing that if you look after your mind and your belief then the action will follow.
Get out of your own way and stop worrying about how it will happen and focus on what is going on in your life right now. I guarantee that the less you worry about the HOW and the more you look at your current life as a reflection of what you actually believe, the closer you will come to your own answer of how to live a healthier and more peaceful life.
